"Extra's" Renee Bargh caught up with will.i.am at the L.A. premiere of "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," and the Black Eyed Peas singer gave us the inside scoop on his recent work with pop princess Britney Spears.

The two recently collaborated, and will.i.am described the sound. "It's mean, but a nice mean. It's hard, but melodic. It's aggressive, but smooth. It's the next level, but today. She's a sweetheart."

He continued, "We made music and that's what I like. When you're doing things because you just love it, without the, ya know, 'We need a single' pressure, when you're just in there having fun, that's what I love."

As for his bandmate, Fergie, does will.i.am think she would be a good judge on "The X Factor"? "You gotta ask Fergie. Fergie, aw man, that girl is a switchblade. Fergie can do just about anything."

Will.i.am did have a suggestion for a judge. "Prince! If anybody is gonna judge anybody it will be Prince. But he's gotta own it though. It's gotta be Prince's show. Prince should have his own show 'What Prince Says.'"
